WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has set bond a former Kansas doctor accused of illegally having a handgun as a convicted felon.

Lawrence Simons, of Wichita, has been jailed since his arrest last month. U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Monday set a $50,000 surety bond in the case.

The ex-doctor was indicted on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, ammunition and controlled substances. He has a 2010 felony conviction for unlawfully distributing prescription drugs.

A magistrate judge had refused to set bail, saying he needed to assure the safety of the community. Simons then asked Belot to review that decision.

Prosecutors say he gave a bondsman a gun as partial payment for bailing him out of jail in April in an unrelated criminal threat case.
